NC State’s coaching staff got some good news Friday when local wide receiver Devin Carter verbaled to the Wolfpack. Carter is a 6’4, 205-pound prospect from nearby Clayton High School, and he also holds offers from Michigan State, Wake Forest, East Carolina, and Minnesota.
At a recruiting camp in Charlotte this week, Carter ran a 4.78 40, which is probably one reason he hasn’t drawn more interest from power-five programs up to this point in his high school career.
But he’s been very productive and he uses his size well. Speed doesn’t have to be essential when you can just beat defensive backs in the air. He finished his junior season with 78 catches for 1,167 yards (15.0 YPC) and 15 scores.
